  • The width of the roll through a visit to the Nagasaki won the Memorial for a lot of study, I was able to do. You can learn all about the war and nuclear bomb passersby about the history and once again it was a place to think.

  • 國立廣島追悼原爆死難者和平祈念館於2002年8月開館,建館的宗旨是讓國人追悼原子彈爆炸遇難者、祈禱永遠和平,同時提醒全世界原子彈爆炸所帶來的浩劫,讓後代永遠牢記原子彈爆炸的經驗。 建議可以到原子彈爆炸資料館之前參觀一下,內心會更平和。 
  • Words failed me when I visited this place. The cruelty of man to man was too horrendous to even contemplate. If we are to save our Earth, and our civilization, every one of us must think deeply about those savage actions, and we must all work extremely hard to create a more civilized and sane World, including in our own small communities.
  • This one is impressive. Not huge, but big enough. Very calm atmosphere inside, makes you think about war and bombings. If you want to visit an atomic bomb related place in Nagasaki, choose this one. Good for praying and feeling the weight of history.
  • What's creepy is it kind of looks like something out of a fallout game, now it looks like the bomb never dropped the Japanese are good at rebuilding
  • water, that's what these people craved for during the aftermath of the bomb. so water is the theme of this memorial monument
  • Children like to study.
